“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.” ~Erasmus

I also splurged on a few magazines, the new Knitscene, Lucky, and The Economist (I know, who am I kidding? Although there is a pretty awesome obituary for a fish in there.)

Here’s what I’ll be lying to myself about in the coming months, mostly in Young Adult:

and don’t forget

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (check!)

Fire by Kristin Cashore (check!)


The Rapture of the Deep by L.A. Meyer (check!)

Whew! What a list. That one tired me out.
